Updated Cluster Management pack is now released

An updated cluster Management Pack is now released.  It fixes problems with resource utilization on cluster with a large number of clustered resources or resource groups as previously noted. Note that the MP Guide mentions a Windows QFE which is not yet released. This is not a requirement for the MP, however the main side effect is that Exchange clusters are not discovered by the MP on Windows Server 2008. Note that the Exchange MP supports clusters, what you miss in the Exchange scenario is the general cluster monitoring provided by the cluster MP. We will notify you when the QFE becomes available.


The following summarizes the changes to the MP:

·         Optimized workflows that query the state of clustered resources

·         Changed the frequency of those workflows (to run every 5 minutes) and documented how to override them.

·         Added documentation on support limits in terms of monitoring of clustered resources (200) and resource groups (100) per cluster.

·         Added various other documentation improvements
